Spring Concert

Monday night was the grade school Spring Concert.  Chloe told me the Saturday before that she had a little solo part.  We decided to go shopping on Sunday for a dress for her to wear.  I figured a quick trip to Target and we would be good to go...ya not so much!!  She wanted a long dress, which they had a bunch at Target, BUT none of them looked great on her as much as she liked them.  We decided to go to The Children's Place and thankfully we found the perfect dress - long in the back to satisfy Chloe and shorter in the front to look cute and satisfy mommy:)  Plus we found a cute sweater to go with!  We also found shoes there but once we tried them on in the car realized they were broken:(  That meant another stop...Walmart to try and find shoes.  Found some!  WOW I felt like I was shopping with a 15 year old not a 5 year old!  Scares me for what is to come!!  The concert was super cute with a little bug theme.  Chloe did great on her part and made us SO PROUD!  The lighting was hard to get very good pictures but I did get a video so was happy with that.

camping time!

Last weekend we took our first camping trip of the season with our good friends the Odenrider's!  It was SO fun, maybe even one of our favorite trips!!  We camped at Two Rivers Resort which is really close to home so the drive was short, the weather was gorgeous and it was super relaxing!  The spot that we got was overlooking the water.  We talked to the front desk and it sounds like someone has this spot reserved for the whole summer so no going back to this spot until next year unfortunately. 
 
Our view

Chloe was so excited about the jungle gym and being able to practice on the monkey bars.

This is pretty much what the kids did the entire time - ride their bikes around and around the loop.  Before we went on this trip Chloe was really cautious on her bike and walked down and up hills.  Since returning from our trip we went on an entire bike ride to town and back and she didn't once get off her bike.  She has so much more confidence just from practicing all weekend!

It got so warm that we had to ditch the shirt for a little bit!

Another view shot

This shows how far the water is down.  Usually it would be all the way up to the tree line.








Sami found the clay


Cheese!!  With a little snot;)


Joel LOVED Layla - it was so cute watching him with her

All the kiddos! Layla was WAY too busy for this picture business.

Sisters!


This is what we had to climb back up to get to our trailer from the beach.  I don't know if you can see it but the kids got a rope to help.

Another trip to the jungle gym

Not a very good picture but the only one I got of Chloe eating her S'MORES

T-Ball FUN

We are in the full swing of T-Ball now with games every Tuesday and Thursday night.  Here are some fun pictures of a game that we played in Harrington.  I must say the kids are having a great time and doing better and better with each game!
 
We decided to get our own helmet this year and ended up getting almost the exact same one as friend, T! 

Looking good girls!!
 
Chlo and some teammates!
